PURPOSE: Urinary tract infections are relatively common in pediatric patients. Unrecognized bacteriuria at the time of urologic surgery puts patients at increased risk for perioperative complications. Many pediatric urologists obtain preoperative or intraoperative urine cultures prior to surgery, but data are lacking regarding rates and risk factors for positive intraoperative urine cultures. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing pediatric urologic surgery to examine factors associated with positive intraoperative urine cultures...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of posterior urethral valve (PUV) is estimated at 1:5000-1:8000 males. It is the most common paediatric urologic urgency and the most common cause of male obstructive uropathy and chronic renal failure in children. The study aimed to describe the experience of Yaoundé gynaeco-obstetrics and paediatric hospital in the management of PUV. METHODS: Retrospectively, medical records were retrieved over a ten year period and all data recorded and analyzed for study objectives...

INTRODUCTION: Bladder calculi are a known complication of bladder augmentation. Open cystolithotomy remains the preferred option for treating large or multiple stones. Increasingly, however, minimal access techniques have been used. Reports of Mitrofanoff cystolitholapaxy are rare and have been limited to adults. This study presented a two centre series of children treated by cystolitholapaxy via the Mitrofanoff/Monti channel. MATERIALS AND METHODS: With institutional approval the current study retrospectively reviewed and identified 14 patients, on a prospective database, who underwent Mitrofanoff cystolitholapaxy to treat bladder calculi at two independent institutions in the UK and Chile between 2004 and 2016...

Neurogenic bladder occur as a consequence of several conditions, most commonly posterior urethral valves syndrome, spina bifida, tethered cord, sacral agenesis, and Arnold-Chiari malformation. It is characterized by diminished bladder capacity and/or reduced compliance, associated with high-pressure voiding that can lead to deterioration of renal function if left untreated. When medical management fails, bladder reconstruction with bowel (aumentation ileocystoplasty) becomes the treatment of choice for these patients...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to bring the reader up to date on the current risk factors for the development of renal deterioration in the boys with posterior urethral valves (PUV) and approaches to modify this risk. RECENT FINDINGS: Renal bladder ultrasound (RBUS) is routinely performed in boys with PUV and recent advancements allow imaging processing that can more accurately quantify renal parenchyma and correlate this with risk for renal loss...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the best criteria for discriminating fetuses with isolated posterior urethral valves from those theoretically not eligible for fetal treatment because of complex megacystis, high chance of spontaneous resolution, and urethral atresia. METHODS: A retrospective national study was conducted in fetuses with megacystis detected before 17 weeks' gestation (early megacystis). RESULTS: In total, 142 cases with fetal megacystis were included in the study: 52 with lower urinary tract obstruction, 29 with normal micturition at birth, and 61 with miscellaneous syndromal associations, chromosomal and multiple structural abnormalities (complex megacystis)...

BACKGROUND: Congenital pyloric atresia (CPA) is a rare anomaly with an incidence of 1 in 100,000 live births. Depending on the type of anomaly patients can either present in the neonatal period or later in life with subtle nonspecific signs and symptoms. We present our institute's experience in handling these cases over the last decade and highlight lessons learnt. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of patients diagnosed with CPA and managed at our centre between Jan 2006 to June 2016...

OBJECTIVES: To determine a model of fetal urine biochemical markers to differentiate megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome (MMIHS) from other megacystis. METHOD: Retrospective study of biochemical analysis of fetal urine in patients who presented prenatally with megacystis. We studied β2-microglobulin, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus. Twenty-six patients subsequently diagnosed with MMIHS were compared with two control groups: one of end-stage renal failure (ESRF, 64 fetuses) and the second of "good" postnatal renal function (control group, 64 fetuses)...

Posterior urethral valve (PUV) rarely causes bladder rupture. We experienced hydronephrosis due to ureteral obstruction after the natural repair of a ruptured bladder in a fetus with PUV. Fetal ascites and oligohydramnios were diagnosed at 26 weeks' gestational age. While we followed up with ultrasonography, we regularly removed the fetal ascites via abdominal puncture, injecting warm saline instead of amniotic fluid. At 35 weeks' gestational age, the infant was diagnosed with severe bilateral hydronephrosis, absent of ascites and oligohydramnios...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to investigate genetic effects in the formation of congenital lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) comprising posterior urethral valves (PUV), urethral atresia, and urethras with variable degrees of stenosis. METHODS: A classic twin study was performed by assessing LUTO twin pairs from the literature. Furthermore, data regarding 3 previously unreported twin pairs with PUV from University of Bonn, Essen and Wrocławs own in-house databases were added...

Urinary ascites is most commonly seen in fetuses and newborns with obstructive uropathy. The majority of cases are associated with lower urinary tract obstruction, such as posterior urethral valves. In this report, we present a unique case of neonatal urinary ascites caused by congenital supravesical obstruction. To date, neonatal urinary ascites secondary to bilateral mid-ureteral stenosis without a history of antenatal diagnosis has not been reported.

OBJECTIVE: Posterior urethral valve is the most common lower urinary tract obstruction in male children. A high percentage of patients with posterior urethral valve evolve to end-stage renal disease. Previous studies showed that cytokines, chemokines, and components of the renin-angiotensin system contribute to the renal damage in obstructive uropathies. The authors recently found that urine samples from fetuses with posterior urethral valve have increased levels of inflammatory molecules...

Lower urinary tract abnormalities are difficult to resolve in pediatric kidney transplant patients. Measure of residual urine, voiding cystourethrography, retrograde urethrography, cystometry, electromyography of urethral external sphincter muscle, urethrometry, and uroflowmetry are the primary methods for evaluation of lower urinary tract abnormalities. Endoscopic resection or ablation of urethral valves is required in children with posterior urethral valve to treat obstruction, but bladder function does not always recover and may deteriorate to end-stage renal failure even after the obstruction is released...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the perinatal survival and renal function of fetuses with lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) who underwent vesicoamniotic shunting using a double-basket catheter METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 32 fetuses with LUTO who underwent vesicoamniotic shunting using a double-basket catheter between 1998 and 2013. RESULTS: Among the 32 fetuses examined, 5 died because of termination of pregnancy, and 2 died in utero. The median gestational age at diagnosis was 15...

INTRODUCTION: Posterior urethral valve (PUV) is the most common cause of pediatric end stage renal disease (ESRD), imposing a major health burden on medical community caregivers and adversely affecting the quality of life of patients. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage III or estimated GFR of <60 mL/min/1.73 m2 is known to be associated with more adverse renal, cardiovascular, and clinical outcomes. Thus, it is desirable to identify factors predicting the rapid and early progression of disease...

A 3-month-old boy with failure to thrive was referred to a nephrology clinic after a diagnostic workup for failure to thrive revealed a serum urea nitrogen level of 95 mg/dL and creatinine level of 3.6 mg/dL. A renal ultrasound revealed marked bilateral hydronephrosis with little remaining renal cortex in either kidney. A voiding cystourethrogram revealed evidence of posterior urethral valves. The child had no evident comorbidities. Fulguration of the valves was successfully performed but did not lead to improvement in kidney function...
